More of the Freedom

Mystic Seaport, Mystic, CT  2015

It was hard to get this 104 foot motor yacht all into one frame with the lens I had with me.  It might be the largest yacht I've seen, but I would have to say, it was the prettiest one I've ever seen.

Mystic Seaport, Mystic, CT

The "star" of this year's Wooden Boat Show at Mystic Seaport was the yacht Freedom.  Pictures hardly do this yacht justice.  It was designed by John Trumpy and built at the Mathis Yacht Building Co in Camden, NJ in 1926.  She's been totally restored and updated by McMillen Yachts Inc and includes room for 10 guests in 5 staterooms.  Fractional ownerships of this 104 foot fantail motor yacht are available, for a pretty hefty price.

Hanging Flowers

New London, CT  2015

Flower baskets like this adorn the streets of downtown New London in the summer time.  They were in full bloom recently, adding some nice color to the city.

Susan Anne

New London, CT  2015

During a recent walk around New London, I happened to luck out and be a good position to watch the Cross Sound Ferry Susan Anne, returning from Orient Point, NY.  The ferry actually backs into the dock stern first.  The boat turns around, without the aide of any tugboats, and just backs in.  I wonder if the captain has rear view mirrors?
